'Bad Internet' Video Series @our_neon_foe IG FB SC

 A blinking smile - a face frozen in time in our Zoom meeting. That moment where you know you missed something or caught something that was not meant to be caught...

In "Bad Internet," a series of video and audio recordings, we see our frustrations with the fallibility of the Internet played out. The audience is asked to find beauty in the stillness and/or degraded artefact rather than FOMO. My previous work series "Wireless Psychics Experiments #1-10 " also arose out of bad internet frustration. For example, one of the performances was a challenge to pick the spot in the room with the strongest Wi-Fi signal. And within that performance,  I found a love for the chance of glitch in performance documentation.

In 2020, video conferencing has entered the everyday and most of us have experienced a frozen face from time to time..

The first two video and/or audio artefacts in the “Bad Internet” series will come from recordings of performances by Kate Brown and Mark Brown at Carriageworks for Our Neon Foe.
